Compare to Sister’s Blog: Month 5: We Have Mobility
7/19 Day 147 Th (21 weeks): Yadda Yadda same old same old last night. The exciting stuff happened after we were up for the day. It was a poop-a-thon. The first one was after his morning toilet wee and I put him down on his play mat bare bum as is our daily routine and he was on his back. It was sometime around 11:30am when I heard the poo-fart go “squidge” and I was startled and squeaked, “Eeeek! Wait Wait!” He looked right at me as I hurried to scoop him up and dash to the bathroom and he had a Bombadier Beetle like expulsion in the toilet and a healthy pee afterwards. Quite proud of myself and of my little butterball, I put him back on the mat to play. Fifteen or twenty minutes later I heard the squidgy noise again. “Aakk! Again!? Wait!” I sputtered urgently, scooped up the bare poop machine and held him over the toilet again where he had another healthy poop released with volcanic force, successive belly tenses, and a satisfied cooing noise. He also peed a bit again. About an hour later I put a prefold on him while I was out of the room to do laundry and he was practicing his yoga poses (I got a picture this time to prove it) and playing on the floor with Itty Bitty and I just had that “feeling”. When I came back he’d had a small mucousy poop and was trying to squiggle away from himself. He’s been swallowing a lot of his own drool lately from constantly having his fist shoved in his mouth.
The rest of the afternoon was a high catch rate and there wasn’t a lot of misses until just before left for work and of course when he was with Daddy Man. It wasn’t an interesting day. Chores as usual, I played Words with Friends, and gave Itty Bitty some scrabble letters to play with. Did laundry. Nursed baby–lots. Lunch, Dinner…bore bore bore. I left for work around 5:00, as we were getting in the car I realized Itty Bitty hadn’t pottied in ages, so I sent her back in the house by herself and told her to potty. She opened the door, went about her business, came back, and climbed in her carseat as I was loading the car. You go girl! I came home around 10PM and was informed that Moose had been inconsolable, drank too much milk, and got a belly ache. They went for a walk and that seemed to help. G-Ma had come over to take Itty Bitty to play and when she came back to drop her off, Moose fell asleep on her and Itty Bitty on Daddy Man.
